The best jacket I have owned for a high degree of warmth with a slim profile.-The hood is fantastic...perfectly shaped to keep out cold air both half zipped and fully deployed. It also is very unobtrusive when you have it down unlike some other jackets I have owned. ,,-The sleeves and waist are the perfect width and length if you have a slim build and average proportions. ,,-I have tried it out in high winds and sub-zero temperatures and I felt no drafts and I noticed how warm I felt compared to my previous jackets. ,,-The workmanship seems excellent,,-The zipper was a little finicky at first but after a couple of wears it is now totally fine. Not sure whether it was me or the zipper needing to get in a groove.

Would suggest to others but with caution; The FEATHERS seem to molt from the coat to easilyI am 6'3" 205 pounds with a 43.5" chest and tried both the XL and L but ended up keeping the L. The XL seemed to big but with the L I have a slimmer fit and can still get two base layers and a Mountain Hardware vest on underneath. My sleeve shirt length is 34-35" and the sleeves on the coat fit perfect. The detail in the coat is amazing from the hood tensioners and waist adjustment, to the felt chin lining and the longer than waist back cut. Good for moving outdoors and not having the coat ride up your back. I've had many down coats from LL BEAN, Mountain Hardware, TNF, and others but never saw a coat that lost it's feathers like this one. After about a month i notice the feathers are all over the seat in my car and not sure why that is. I will keep an eye on this though. The other oppportunity I am seeing is the Zipper. It is not one of those that works the first time every time and I have not found that secret yet either. Seems when it gets cold its even harder.

Not very goodI can't believe it's so light and so warm.I live in Harbin and it exactly corresponds with my needs.But the fabrics is not strong enough as a jacket.
